your pretensions have no limits
like my thought-plan knows no bounds
but together they’ll dance love-songs
on our peoples’ burial mounds_
we’ll work out our own contrition
from your conscience prisoners’ smile
turn their passion into fashion
remold their suffering with your style_
while actors trip fantastics
but remember all their part
and poets starve in garrets
to ‘do their bit’ for art
and your ‘red phase’ and your ‘blue phase’
take to screwing in the trees
creating purple deja-vous from sordid symmetries

then as the theatre gallery closes
rushed critics spill their ink
to tell you all of what they thought
the rest of you should think!
